Your technician whistled as he came up the walk and also while he worked! He must be happy to work for Putman Plumbing. E. Guenthener
With snow expected in Frederick County and throughout Maryland tomorrow, and temperatures dropping into the teens next week, it’s a good time to remind area residents how to protect your plumbing in winter weather. As much as we love the business, it’s best to be proactive and be prepared if you want to keep your home running smoothly and everyone in it happy!
We’re not worried about pipes freezing yet, but keep these things in mind when we’re expecting temps to stay below freezing for longer periods.
If you turn your faucet on and nothing comes out (or it’s just a trickle), the pipes could be frozen. To thaw pipes, don’t ever use a flame. Instead:
If a pipe breaks, close the main shut-off valve to prevent flooding. The valve will be in the basement, garage, or outside by the foundation. If you can’t locate a shut-off valve, call the utility company. Then, call Putman Plumbing right away for help!
